|Mars Entry and Descent Landing Instrument - AMA Studios|
NASA X: MEDLI NASA X investigates The Mars Science Laboratory Entry, Descent, and Landing Instrument, or (MEDLI). This suite is a set of engineering sensors designed to measure the atmospheric conditions and performance of the Mars Science Laboratory heatshield during entry and descent at Mars. While not part of the core MSL scientific payload, it will provide important information for the design of entry systems for future planetary missions...

|Inflatable Re Entry Vehicle Experiment - AMA Studios|
IRVE-3 is part of NASA’s Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (HIAD) Project, which aims to provide the agency with a less-expensive and modular means to return space capsules--those carrying cargo from the International Space Station, for instance--to Earth safely despite the high forces and temperatures that act on them during reentry. Doing so could make travel to and from earth orbit far more economical while also providing a tested and certified platform that could be readily ada...

|Environmentally Responsible Aviation - AMA Studios|
NASA X: Environmentally Responsible Aviation The aircraft of today are quieter, more efficient and stronger than anyone could have imagined even a few short years ago. Future aircraft will continue this trend and become even more efficient and dependable, reaching unimaginable goals that today's aircraft could never reach. But how will they reach these goals and who is doing the important work to change the way we all fly?

|Game Changing Technologies - NASA X|
NASA X - Game Changing Technolgies The Game Changing Development Program seeks to identify and rapidly mature innovative/high impact capabilities and technologies for infusion in a broad array of future NASA missions. NASA X explores a new composite cryotank and a revolutionary Exoskeleton, called X1. Both of these game changing technologies will help not only NASA, but people here on Earth.
